Italy among our main economic partners says Putin

Three Italian firms pull out of meeting with Russian president

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 26 - Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow considers Italy "one of its main economic partners" ahead of an online meeting on Wednesday with a delegation of Italian industrial groups.
    Putin said that Italian energy firms were receiving Russian gas "at prices much lower than the market rate" thanks to long-term contracts with Gazprom.
    Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday's meeting was a regular event and had nothing to do with the Ukraine crisis and sanctions against Russia.
    He added, however, that three Italian firms had opted not to take part in the meeting. (ANSA).
